We may be back at home for a while, but it's still important to keep our spirits up and to look and feel professional.
I find that the simple act of getting dressed properly in the morning, putting on some makeup (essential for those Zoom calls) and wearing something new adds to my confidence and positivity.
What to wear now and how to put together a capsule wardrobe to suit our changed needs is a challenge I've enjoyed - I hope you enjoy browsing through our style capsule of perfectly easy pieces for Autumn WFH style.
1. THE SLIM FIT KNIT
While cosy chunky sweaters may be just the thing for off duty or weekend style - consider a more slim fit ribbed or simple sweater for your work from home capsule. Some of our favourites include the SLFCosta ribbed roll neck, the 360 Leila cashmere crew neck sweater and the Part Two Esmi Cashmere Cardigan
2. THE MIDI SKIRT
Instead of trousers or jeans, why not change up your look and add a midi length skirt ? Longer lengths work well with knee high boots, or with sturdier flat footwear such as brogues or trainers. Opt for pleats or a print that you can team with a slim fit knit or a pretty blouse. Our favourites include the SLFZuri brown floral print skirt, the Suncoo Franka Skirt, the SLFAlexis pleated skirt & the SLFArdee leather A line midi.
3. THE ALL ROUND JEAN
OK it's great on many days to slide into your favourite jeans for comfort, as long as they're a great stretch denim that is ! Focus on a pretty blouse or sweater on the top and who's to know that your wearing jeans. Our go to's for a skinny cut include the Alice from Part Two a flattering mid rise skinny, the Ida from Selected Femme and the Kate a new straight leg jean also from Selected Femme. Shop Jeans here
4. THE STATEMENT BLOUSE
For more business like days or zoom calls a blouse or shirt will add instant professionalism, and can always be layered with a sweater or cardigan for cooler days. Consider smaller scale floral prints or mini geometrics rather than larger prints as they will come over better on video calls. Our current favourites include the Suncoo Lenita Blouse, the Set Millefleurs Blouse and the Set mini animal print blouse also the SLFMarianna pleat detail blouse in plain cream adds interest to a plain tone.
5. THE EASY DRESS
Like a skirt it's good to wear a dress sometimes, it's a quick fix to daily dressing and layered with a piece of knitwear you can instantly add a touch of casual glamour. Just go for less formal shirt dress styles, smaller all over prints, soft fabrics and the essential midi length that you can team with boots or casual footwear. Our favourites include the Set mini animal print dress, the SLFZuri brown floral print shirtdress and the Part Two Edie floral print dress
